It's written in clear, concise and easy-to-understand language.

The guide contains detailed explanations, tutorials, photographs, checklists, menu trees, parts diagrams, suggested settings, tips, tricks, and page after page of practical advice.

Book: Vortex Media Book: Field Guide for the Sony PMW-EX3 by Doug Jensen is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for begineers. This is a decent reference book for beginners and those that fit in between beginners and intermediates, although quite overpriced for what it contains. Professionals experienced with full broadcast cameras will find a glorified version of the manual and a lot of tips from the author's working style preference stated as fact. For example: Tip 4 - Always leave the shutter on. If you turn it off you may forget to turn it back on. Another example on manual exposure.. If the shutter speed isn't set properly for the Video Format you're using, you'll run the risk of getting blurry motion (shutter too slow) or a strobing effect (shutter too fast). The book is wrought with explanations like this without going into due detail. What if you want the blurry or strobing effect? There is nothing on picture profiles except a short description of the profile the writer likes to use, which just changes 4 settings. According to his view, They are not options to be played around with just to see what happens if you change this or that. As I said before the book does provide a decent base if you're a beginner but I think should be priced lower.
